Fairy tales

•When it was pointed out to Pat Rabbitte that his proposal for pre-pay electricity meters for those who cannot meet rising fuel bills, will do little to help them maintain a connection, he shrugged it off.

This suggests he fails to see that pre-pay meters must have credit to maintain supply. They expose the most vulnerable to great danger as power can be cut off at any time once credit has run out.

Or maybe the pre-pay meters Mr Rabbitte is proposing are a new Labourite type that keep giving even when not fed?
